Has your regular spore trap testing lab over promised and under delivered? Why not start getting the scientifically accurate results you were meant to see according to the Standard by switching to us? After all, shouldn’t you let the true value inherent in the spore trap data properly inform your decision-making regarding cleanup strategy…
We analyse spore traps and tape lifts. These are two common techniques for measuring the contamination level indoors and for certifying areas before and after remediation. This step is called the initial assessment or post-remediation verification (PRV).
Our testing is rigorous and follows the ASTM D7391 – 09. Standard Test Method for Categorization and Quantification of Airborne Fungal Structures in an Inertial Impaction Sample by Optical Microscopy. This is the active standard for air sampling and spore counting.
If you prefer spore traps and tape lifts to viable Petri plates, we’re happy to analyse them for you. Just buy your blank testing media from us or send in your already sampled Zefon Air-O-Cell or Versa Trap cassettes and we’ll analyse them for you. If you buy blank Air-O-Cell or Bio-Tape lifts from us, then you will need to send them back to us for analysis. The cost of analysis is included in the cost of purchase.
You can also lease/hire one of our Zefon Bio-Pump Plus air sampling pumps. These work in combination with the Zefon Air-O-Cell cassettes for professional sampling. Pick up and return of the air pump is free of charge to our Melbourne office and is competitively priced.
All samples normally analysed and a written PDF report will be returned to you within approx. 72-hrs after sample arrival. It is possible for us to fast-track your results for an additional fee and depending on other lab work already in the pipeline.

Sample Biological Health Services Spore Trap Lab Report details all the information you would expect including raw spore and hyphal fragment counts per Genus/Species, background debris rating, concentration of spores per cubic metre and other important information. Our Lab reports follow the ASTM D7391 – 09 Standard for spore counting methodology using optical microscopy.
